Editor’s note: Cate from Girls Cooks World has turned dessert upside down with these bacon chocolate chip cookies, which include both bacon fat and candied bacon bits. If that’s not enough, it turns out these porky treats are gluten-free too. Cate preps the dough ahead of time and then bakes them on-site at her friends’ dinner parties. --Jane

The cookie dough is made with butter and bacon grease, which infuses every bite with a faint porky, savory goodness. And plenty of candied bacon is mixed in along with a generous amount of chocolate chips. Even those who claimed to not like sweets were intrigued enough to give them a try.
